Forget 5G, Expect Much Smoother Smart Home Networks Thanks To Wi-Fi 6E
With so much news around 5G in the last year, a lot of us may have missed the Federal Communications Commission’s announcement. They voted to expand a part of the spectrum in the 6GHz band for unlicensed consumption.
This latest move by the FCC frees up more spectrum for linking the 5G in-home devices that facilitate popular applications like video calls and video streaming to connected IoT devices.
Previously routers in the smart homes could only broadcast their wireless signals over the 2.4GHz and 5GHz spectrums. It is expected to be on the market by the end of this year, sold as Wi-Fi 6E. Smart home owners have always had poor experiences with spectrum congestion, poor network, and devices dropping out.
Wi-Fi 6E has space for up to seven maximum-capacity Wi-Fi streams to be broadcasted simultaneously and most importantly, without interfering with each other. While users may not experience particularly faster speed, but there is a high chance that we may enjoy better speeds than what we are used to now. While it seems awesome, we will have to consider the cost of new router hardware and forget the upgradation of existing routers. Wi-Fi 6E-compatible smart devices are likely to hit the market early next year.
